    So far she has said the following, taken from Reuters:

    Need gradual, cautious approach to policy adjustment

    Once interest rate rises start, must assess effects on economic and financial conditions

    Neutral interest rate is likely to remain low for some time

    Weak growth abroad pushes up on dollar, down on neutral interest rate

    Delayed liftoff, shallower rate hike path needed to offset impact of stronger dollar on US jobs

    Spillover from abroad limits Fed's ability to raise rates as other central banks do not

    Lower US potential economic growth also pushes down on neutral interest rate
    Decline in measures of inflation expectations warrants close monitoring
